We stock Janome and Elna sewing machines and overlockers.
Established in 1921, Janome has been synonymous with quality sewing machines for a century. In 1936, the company acquired its first mass production factory for sewing machines, starting out in Japan and now also have manufacturing plants in Thailand and Taiwan and export products to more than 100 countries worldwide. Japanese entreprener Yosaku Ose founded the PINE sewing machine factory on October 16, 1921.He took the convential oblong 'shuttle-type' bobbin and replaced it with a round bobbin. The innovative design improved the efficiency and speed of a traditional sewing machine significally. The new bobbin was affectionately called Janome, (pronounced: Ja-No-Mey), meaning 'the Snake's eye' in Japanese. The name became an official trademark Janome in 1935 and was formally adopted as the company name Janome Sewing Machine Co Ltd, in 1954, changing to Janome Corporation in October 2021, at its 100th Anniversary.
